Alíz Horváth recently completed her PhD in East Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. She also holds a dual MA degree in Japanese and Chinese philology and an additional BA in Korean and Finnish language and has spent multiple years in these four areas as a scholarship holder. She is interested in the mechanisms of transnational flows in Japan, China, and Korea, as well as the dynamics of intellectual history, cultural history, and history writing. She enjoys experimenting with interdisciplinary solutions and novel methods, such as digital tools, to explore innovative approaches to the study of East Asia. She is particularly enthusiastic about data visualizations and text analysis and actively advocates for diversity and inclusion in digital humanities through the promotion of non-Western perspectives. She currently teaches East Asian (Japanese, Chinese, and Korean) history and digital humanities at Eötvös Loránd University as assistant professor and is also a member of various international DH-related initiatives, such as the NEH-funded “New Languages for NLP” project, organized by Princeton University and Haverford College in collaboration with Library of Congress Labs and DARIAH.
